The room was clean but the carpet was freshly cleaned and was slightly damp but dried out during our three day stay. The... More

The girl on the desk quoted me a price of $67 and change for a single for one night, but when I checked my bank statement, I found I'd been charged $77.36. I had just ridden my motorcycle 649 miles from northeast Arkansas, so I was happy to find a comfortable place to stop for the night and she did... More

We were looking for a budget hotel with good shuttle service to the Mayo. We got it. It's not the most fancy, but the price was right. It was clean and quiet with free parking. The staff was helpful and friendly, especially the shuttle driver. The pool was great. The shuttle is dedicated to this hotel so you get very... More

We have stayed here for year and it has gone down fast. Don't accept a room in the annex. Musty smell. They moved us when it rained because water came in and carpet got wet. To 10 min. for hot water. Cleaning staff seemed unhappy responded with a groan when greeted. Room was never cleaned. The shuttle drivers were excellant,... More

I came here last weekend in March to spend my birthday weekend with a bunch of friends. I'd have to say, my stay was just fine. I'm an easy going person. It would have been nice would have been to have all 3 of my rooms together, but due to such a big tournament going on I was fine with... More

My wife and I had been driving close to 6 hrs, with about 75 miles to go, on a trip that normally takes about 5.5 hrs. There was heavy snow and wind the day before, roads were pretty bad. From La Crosse to Rochester was white knuckle driving, and 52 north was supposed to be worse. So, we decided it... More

We came to Rochester to go to Mayo Clinic. We called and they promptly sent a shuttle to pick us up at the airport. The shuttle drivers were very nice. The room was clean and comfortable.
